Great culture

Great culture - it is a shame the company was bought. Managers were overall supportive and encouraged learning. Communication was important in all areas.

There's a reason it was voted the best place to work in Houston so many times.

Great company as per my experience in offshore drilling with them. They employed good people and, for the most part, walked the talk. Of course, my time with them as a contractor ended just as Oxy was taking over, so I can't say how it is now, though I still hear positive things from friends still with the company.

Great place

Really no complaints other than it was a little slower paced than I would have liked, however that would be a plus for many people. Great culture and sense of community

Fun place to work

Good place to work and attractive compensation. The merger was unfortunate. The company should have been left alone to take care of its share holders and employees long term. I guess immediate gains supersedes....

Productive work place with good benefits

Our Midland office was an upbeat fun place to work. We had fun Friday with mini golf tournaments where each office set up their own golf course. It was a very family oriented company and everyone was very supportive of each other. It was a sad day when they announced that they were closing the Midland office.


Nice work space, and great break room.

My first eight years was great. The last year was tough due to commodity prices and overall company moral took a plunge.

Good project work, safety is important. Seemed to always have a large problem holding the company back. commodity prices like any other oil and gas firm causes ups and downs. When times are they are good.


Pay and time off

Not bad

The company grew too fast. Lawsuits prevented company from further prospering. Drop in oil prices forced massive layoffs. Executive leadership was solid.

Great not so great

Whilst working in the field as an inspector I had plenty opportunities to ensure quality and compliance to federal codes and standards. Under different project managers, not all vendors manufactured compliant to engineering and code requirements. Managers and project leads were not appointed to skill sets, but rather as friends or family. Vendor manufacturing was accepted as installed, overriding inspector findings and references. Their lack of understanding required code and specification resulted in inferior quality and reliability. Why upper management tolerated and sometimes supported these individuals is not understandable.


Great peers


Under qualified and inappropriate qualified project managers

Was a great company to work for as a third party contractor. Best company to work for in my 27 years in construction. All management and construction teams were very professional.
